ASME Model-Based Enterprise (MBE) Public Page: MBE Standards Committee Meeting held on November 13-15, 2019

Added by Thomas Hedberg about 2 years ago

Approximately 40 individuals with interest and expertise in the area of Model-Based Enterprise (MBE) gathered at the Holiday Inn San Antonio Riverwalk, San Antonio, Texas in mid-November to discuss and exchange ideas for creating model-based standards and supporting tools. On November 13th members of the MBE Standards Committee gave overview presentations on the direction and goals of the MBE Standards Committee and its Working Groups (WG). Several members of the WGs were also invited to share their experience in related technical projects. All the public presentations are available at: https://projects.mbe.institute/documents/13.

The three WGs that met on November 13th and 14th include the Use Cases and Model Based Standards Development (MBSD) WG, Terms WG, and Near-Term Strategy WG. The Use Cases and MBSD WG investigated initial use cases and evaluated tools to develop a focused plan for standards development methodologies. The Terms WG identified and defined several terms in MBE. The Near-Term Strategy WG brainstormed issues impeding understanding and industrial adoption of MBE today and ideas for MBE standards activity.

The MBE Framework WG is being formed and seeking new members. This WG will be tasked with providing a high-level structural definition of MBE.

ASME Model-Based Enterprise (MBE) Public Page: MBE SC announces presentations for Fall 2019 Plenary Session

Added by Thomas Hedberg about 2 years ago

Three technical presentations will be made during the opening plenary session in the morning of 13 November in San Antonio, Texas. Information for the three presentations is below:

Using Model-Based and Agile Development Processes to Develop STEP Standards
Presenter: Brandon Sapp (Boeing)
This presentation will discuss how ISO TC184/SC4, the developers of ISO 10303, also known as STEP, are exploring mapping from EXPRESS to SysML to further support model-based standards development. This presentation will also cover the tool chain, Agile Methods, and the publication process that ISO TC 184/SC4 uses.

Transforming legacy, static engineering documents into smart, connected, and change-aware assets
Presenter: Tatyana Vidrevich (XSB)
This presentation will describe specific problems the SWISS platform is trying to address regarding non-geometric information about complex engineering parts. Current approaches to digital models of specifications and the process of modeling specifications will be presented.

Review a Structured Process for Defining Terminology
Presenter: Jeffrey Winter (NNSA, DOE)
This presentation will propose a lexicon framework and approach to developing terms and definitions. Rules, sample formats, notations, and semantic relationships will be discussed.

ASME Model-Based Enterprise (MBE) Public Page: ASME co-organizing MBE Summit, Talk Deadline Approaches

Added by Thomas Hedberg about 2 years ago

ASME is a co-organizer of the MBE Summit 2020 with NIST, U.S. Department of Defense, and INCOSE. The MBE Summit 2020 will take place 30 March to 3 April 2020 at NIST in Gaithersburg, Maryland. The goal of the MBE Summit is to identify challenges, research, implementation issues, and lessons learned in design, manufacturing, quality assurance, and sustainment of products and processes where a digital three-dimensional (3D) model of the product serves as the authoritative information source for all activities in a product's lifecycle. The theme of the MBE Summit 2020 is Increasing MBE Adoption and Implementation . There is no doubt that MBE requires a complex organizational work design that recognizes the interaction between people, skills, and technology in workplaces. The 11th MBE Summit is focused on highlighting the organizational culture surrounding MBE, needs of people operating in MBE, and real-world implementations of MBE in practice.

Submissions for papers, panels, posters, and vendor demonstrations are being accepted until 9 November 2019. More submission information and instructions are available at: https://easychair.org/cfp/mbe2020.

ASME Model-Based Enterprise (MBE) Public Page: MBE working groups are making technical progress

Added by Thomas Hedberg about 2 years ago

The working groups (WG) of the ASME Model-Based Enterprise Standards Committee (MBE SC) met several times over the past month. Below is a brief status update for each WG.

Terms WG
Leader: Curtis Brown, cbrown@kcnsc.doe.gov
Type: Chartered
The Terms WG met twice in September. The meetings consisted of the initial kick-off meeting with a review of the WG Charter describing the overall purpose and key outcomes and benefits. The WG also received a presentation that described the National Nuclear Security Administration's structured approach to construct and format controlled vocabularies. The WG also began reviewing existing repositories of definitions related to MBE.

Use Cases & Model-Based Standards Development (MBSD) WG
Leader: Will Sobel, will@govimana.com
Type: Chartered
The Use Cases & MBSD WG reviewed and revised its charter; it now reads as follows: "The Use Cases & MBSD WG defines the methods the MBE SC will use to develop use cases and model-based standards”. The simplified charter will clarify the WG's focus on standards-development methodology. The WG also began discussing a white-paper outline for the November meeting to gather best practices being used in industry. On September 20, the WG heard about the SWISS (Semantic Web for Interoperable Standards) activities for indexing and cross referencing documents used in manufacturing using RDF models. Scheduled for the upcoming teleconference on October 4, the WG will receive a presentation about work going on at ISO TC184/SC4 regarding mapping EXPRESS to SysML and OWL for Model-Based Definition.

Near-Term Strategy Ad-Hoc WG
Leader: Bryan Fischer, brfischer@tdp360.com
Type: Ad-Hoc
The ASME MBE SC Near-Term Strategy WG is developing recommendations for near term goals and deliverables for the ASME MBE SC. The WG is still in the early stages of work. Some ideas relate to near-term needs in industry (such as extensions of existing material, additional tools needed, recommendations for best practices, etc.), some ideas relate to operations (such as interfacing with other standards activities), and some ideas relate to foundational elements for the long-term vision of the ASME MBE SC.

The ASME MBE SC is actively seeking additional members for each chartered working group. Experts willing to contribute toward the work products of a WG, become eligible for WG membership by submitting completed PAF and PF-1forms to Fred Constantino at constantinof@asme.org.

ASME Model-Based Enterprise (MBE) Public Page: ASME MBE SC approves forming a MBE Framework Working Group

Added by Thomas Hedberg about 2 years ago

The ASME Model-Based Enterprise Standards Committee (MBE SC) approved the formation of a MBE Framework Working Group (WG). This WG will support consistent definition, organization, and relationships for high-level components of a model-based enterprise to facilitate integrating, information sharing, and exploiting of requirements defined in the MBE standards. Below is the WG's charter statement and an overview of the WG's scope.

MBE Framework WG
Leader: Roy Whittenburg, rdwhittenburg@mbd360.com

Charter Statement: The MBE Framework WG defines the concept of a model-based enterprise by providing a high-level structural definition.

Scope:

  • Develop a narrative definition (in collaboration with the Terms WG) and description of MBE.
  • Investigate and recommend to the MBE SC the best available framework Framework approach for defining MBE.
  • Collect and moderate high-level MBE components, including but not limited to: people, processes, information, technology.
  • Use a methodical model-based approach (in collaboration with the Use Case & MBSD WG) to define the architecture of an MBE.
  • Document the structural definition of core MBE components.

The ASME MBE SC is actively seeking additional members for each of the MBE working groups. Experts willing to contribute toward the work products of a WG, become eligible for WG membership by submitting completed PAF and PF-1 forms to Fred Constantino at constantinof@asme.org.

When completing the PF-1 form, please enter the following information in the corresponding fields:
